Messenger: Zoombombing is the next front in the battle against rising anti-Semitism – St. Louis Post-Dispatch

In New York, the current national epicenter of the pandemic, Zoombombing has become so bad that the city has banned the softwares use for online learning.

For some organizations using Zoom to connect, the additional security can be problematic, because it limits participation.

These can be really wonderful learning spaces, Aroesty said.

Indeed, from Alcoholics Anonymous groups, to churches, synagogues and mosques, nonprofits and schools, the Zoom platform has become a universal connector. On a more personal level, it can help unite family members through daily chats while they are separated to keep each other safe.

The Department of Justice has issued warnings that hacking such a platform is a crime, and Zoom has said the company is taking steps to make it more difficult for those with bad intentions to hijack meetings.

Still, Aroesty said, its a reminder that to protect the vulnerable around us, we all have to be more intentional about our actions.

Thats similar to advice Aroesty often gives as she battles the rise of anti-Semitism in America.
